Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

True. Natively I speak the Danish tongue.

My monitor? It's dirty, that's what it is. Cheap and dirty - and quite nasty. But easy and fast - you can't expect too much for $99.

It's some cheap ASUS lcd-something and true to its nature, it claims that it's splendid and I should try to push its buttons. Which usually results in all kinds of weird color cycling. Some sort of rage, perhaps?

Yeah, totally...
Well, maybe color is in fact the problem with the kawai discussion. Maybe his monitor is BGR and ours is RGB, and that's why his screenshots looks so crappy and slutty on your dirty monitor (and my monitor as well). Maybe he even has vertical RGB or something... who knows
